We’re on the Countdown

One week left and it’s Christmas Day! We all have a busy week ahead as we do last minute preparations. I would like to remind everyone to make sure you don’t miss Barb Stegemann’s visit to Aphrodite this Wednesday, December 19. With every fragrance purchase she will be giving away a free signed copy of her book  The 7 Virtues of a Philosopher Queen – A Woman’s Guide to living & leading in an illogical world. This is an excellent, if not life altering book. The fragrances are divine. And Barb’s dad, Antigonish native Marv Robbins will be dropping in for a visit too. Hope to see you then!

Just in case you are in a quandary for that special gift that you haven’t found yet – we have some beautiful art and crafts starting at less than $50.00. My favourite are the gorgeous birds painted on stone by Rob Buckland Nicks from Bear River NS. They range in price from about $50 to $90 and are one of a kind objects d’art for the art lover and or bird enthusiast. Each one is set on a piece of natural seaweed. Have a look….

Perfumes of Peace Holiday Event with 7 Virtues CEO, Barb Stegemann


 Barb Stegemann will be home for Christmas on December 19th at Aphrodite Art & Fashion at 292 Main Street, Antigonish for noon and evening book signings and to present her 7Virtues line of fragrances. The fragrances made with essential oils from nations rebuilding was ranked the Top Game Changer in the history of CBC’s Dragons Den on Dec 5th.  The same day the Antigonish native was named one of the 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada WXN.

“I am really exited to be back home and can’t wait to catch up with friends from school and neighbours,” says Stegemann. “We were raised in a community influenced by the Coady Institute, so my work in trade with nations rebuilding is very much a reflection of the values of our community in empowering others through economic development.”

The 7 Virtues fragrance collection is exclusive to The Bay across Canada, Lord & Taylor in NYC and Air Canada on Board Duty Free.

“We were getting so many requests from our customers in Antigonish for the 7 Virtues fragrances after Dragons’ Den that I decided to reach out to Barb Stegemann through her father, Marv Robbins,” says Tiiu Poder, owner/manager of Aphrodite. “Barb explained the exclusivity deal with her department stores but agreed to do a one day only in-store event and is giving away a free signed book with each fragrance purchase!”

Starting December 11, Aphrodite will have tester fragrances in store for customers to pop by and pick their favourite and even place an order. Then on Dec 19th Stegemann will be in the store for book signings and a brief talk on her brilliant journey.
